Gadabout

As Chip Towers reports, longtime Bulldog jack-of-all-trades and gadabout Loran Smith was injured in a serious car accident in France earlier this week, but Smith is now back home in Athens and says he's “sore as hell but I’m going to be OK.” Smith, who cohosts the pregame tailgate show on the UGA radio network, reports from the sidelines during games and edits/writes the game programs, is probably mainly fretting about the fact that the accident prevented him from making his annual trip to golf's British Open.

Get well quickly, Loran! …One of the most likable guys ever to play for the Dogs is all-time NCAA winningest quarterback David Greene ("Greenie" to his many friends).

Greene is involved in Saturday's Countdown to Kickoff and the Athens Banner-Herald provides an update on what he's been doing since retiring from the NFL after four frustrating seasons in which he never got into a game.

Greene says once the season starts, "I'll definitely miss the game.

There's no doubt about that." But the workouts and practices, "I really won't miss that.

… I won't miss two-a-days for sure."Â And in case you missed it last year, here's my chat with Greene about his days at UGA, including his favorite games and plays and that "44-flatback-rooskie" play he was the master of, faking the handoff and hiding the ball until his receiver was wide open.

… Â Finally, the Louisville Courier-Journal has an interesting story on how former Kentucky basketball player Mark Pope decided to give up medical school at Columbia University to become one of new coach Mark Fox's assistants at UGA.
